I Found It!!!!

I finally found it!!!  *Pumps fist into the air*  I found my rug hooking hook!  

I know I haven't said anything but I have been looking for my favorite hook for over a month now!!  Crazy I know - I didn't even mention this to my husband because it is so silly.  I was even about to order a new hook from Gene Shepherd since I love his hooks - but stubborn me - I kept looking and looking every so often hoping it would turn up.  I did try to use a different hook for a bit but I really like my hook and wanted it :-(

Well my bad little hook rolled under my cutter and until I got down on my hands and knees to search through a bin, and happened to look up at the cutter, it was completely hidden from my view.  Can you see the hook in the photo?  Sigh - so there is sat until last night when I finally found it. 

 

Well, needless to say, I hooked for a few hours last night on a pattern I had started a loooong time ago.  It is a Star Rug Hooking Company pattern that was a free pattern in Rug Hooking Magazine a while back.  I don't know why I love her patterns so much - maybe it is that they have such a sense of whimsy to them and are just so primitive and CUTE!

 

Isn't he a cutie??  It's Mr Iggy going out Trick or Treating.  I had Mr Iggy's head and the crow hooked but that was about it until last night and then I couldn't stop hooking - yey!! My youngest son - the one who loves pumpkins, said; "Mommy that's a silly pumpkin!"  I asked why he was silly and he said, very matter of factly, "Silly pumpkins have a mouth that go up and down, Happy pumpkins have a smile, angry pumpkins have a frowny mouth and scary pumpkins have a mouth like this" (makes a wide-mouthed circle with his mouth).  I had to laugh!  So apparently Mr Iggy has a silly pumpkin treat holder LOL!

Oh it is so wonderful to actually find something that I have been looking for for so long now (ok only about a month but it felt a lot longer)!  it is so nice to get back to hooking too - the cooler weather always makes me want to get back into hooking again.

So what would you have done?  Keep looking or buy a new hook?

I definitely would keep looking. When something is lost, I always believe it will come home if I wait long enough.
